IndieMe Marketplace Announces Unparalleled Growth Within Industry. 
Where technology meets art. Celebrating 25 years of connecting artists and buyers, new marketplaces, and 7th Virtual Expo.

Cleveland, OH September 20, 2022

The leading handcrafted, wholesale marketplace announces its 25th anniversary, their 7th Virtual Expo, and two new IndieMe marketplaces: Artisan Food and The Spa. This growth continues IndieMe’s unrivaled presence as a premiere platform for buyers to source Made in the USA and Canada products.

IndieMe Virtual Expo

Jacqueline Adamany, IndieMe Marketplace, LLC owner explains, “IndieMe created the first handcrafted Virtual show in 2020 to support both the retailer and the artist. As the year 2020 began to unfold, it became noticeably clear that in-person shows would be shutting down and we needed to find a way to replicate that virtually. We believe we have done that with our Virtual Expo. Our most recent September 2022 expo grew by 150% from our first expo in June 2020. Many of our retailers keep telling us it is “just what the industry needed.” We are excited to announce the 7th IndieMe Marketplace Virtual Expo, February 8-14, 2023.

The expertise and industry-specific knowledge provided by IndieMe Marketplace, LLC, positions the company for the concept of a Virtual Expo. “We want to offer the option to stay home and shop during a trade show without the added expense of travel. The Virtual Expo is structured like a traditional trade show: show specials by participating artists, giveaways, and credits to buyers,” shares Jaqueline. The Virtual Expo is free for qualified buyers and a nominal fee is charged to artists. Learn more at

I love the expo's on IndieMe! It’s turned me to many artist work I normally would not have searched for. Thanks for all you do!

I love the virtual expos. I actually think I buy more items than if I went to the show. I have more time to think about my purchases and not get distracted. You guys are awesome. Thank you for all your hard work during the year.

In all honesty, I did better here at this expo than I’ve done at the Chicago (Beckman’s and Roseville- when they had those) gift shows, Minneapolis, Seattle, or Atlanta. Lol! I’m just thrilled. Thanks, IndieMe!

Artisan Food and The Spa Marketplaces

The IndieMe Marketplace continues to create resources for the handcrafted, wholesale industry by developing two new marketplaces powered by IndieMe. The Artisan Food Marketplace features artists who create small batch, handcrafted foods using non-industrialized methods, using recipes handed down through generations.

The Spa Marketplace features all-natural handcrafted lotions, oils, soaps, candles, and more. A marketplace where small business owners can shop wellness, relaxation, health, bath, and body products 24/7.

25th Anniversary

The IndieMe Marketplace will be celebrating 25 years in the handcrafted wholesale industry developing industry-specific resources and solutions, marketing, and managing their family of online platforms.

IndieMe is the premiere online wholesale marketplace for retailers to source over 250,000 handcrafted products from juried American and Canadian wholesale artists. The platform features only 100% handcrafted items including, ceramics, jewelry, glass, home décor, sculptures, fiber, artisan food, and much more. IndieMe is woman-owned with a staff of artists and individuals that have been in and around the wholesale, handcrafted industry for many years.

Enrollment is free for retailers. IndieMe does not take a commission on any sales. Instead, the artist pays a low monthly web fee. IndieMe offers many marketing opportunities including IndieMe's award-winning, printed Buyer's Guide catalogs, Digital Gift Guides targeting niche markets, and special events held throughout the year.

"The Future of Wholesale does not need to be reinvented, it has always been IndieMe. We're more than a platform, we are a family of multiple marketplaces with a focus on growing the industry and shopping local. We are motivated by teamwork and passion, we are inspired by our members. We offer stellar customer service along with the tools and strategy small business owners rely on to successfully scale their business. As the industry changes and grows so does IndieMe. We take the hassle out of scouring through hundreds of “stuff” online to source handcrafted," shares Jacqueline.
